Design for Manufacturing (DFM)
No company can afford to redesign a product once it’s in production. Design for manufacturing (DFM) is an important element of the product conceptualization and design process. It helps ensure that an electronics-based product can be efficiently and cost-effectively produced. Design for manufacturing includes considerations related to manufacturing process, assembly, and electronics test.
DFM (along with solid product marketing and sales) is critical to helping a product succeed on the market.
OCM Manufacturing’s design for manufacturing services can ensure that your low- to mid-volume electronics product is cost-effective to manufacture, with high levels of quality. That translates into a product that can be sold at a competitive price, with minimal defects and low returns.
